The Squad: Prison Police premiered on A&E on August 5, 2010. Imagine a city populated entirely by the nation's worst criminals, and it's your job to police them. The Squad: Prison Police follows a uniquely trained team of special agents who respond to and investigate, every major crime in the Tennessee prison system - from riots, assaults and escapes, to organized crime, drugs, stabbings and murder. "The Squad" functions as detectives, SWAT and CSI all rolled into one. Each half hour episode follows at least one investigation from beginning to end.
